Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
I provide pre-built .8.in and .html.in files to prevent the required
tools from becoming mandatory build prerequisites. As you noticed,
this also helps with dealing with different syntax of different
versions of those tools.
I guess your AIX GCC package maintainer might want to either provide
the required runtime library for the stack protector feature, or to
disable the feature completely. Leaving it broken is not a good idea.
